Hi Panza girl,
Try:
http://www.auschwitz.dk/Women/
http://www.phdn.org/histgen/schmitz/sswomen.html
http://www.holocaust-history.org/~dkere ... en04.shtml

Beware, there are there also some gruesome pix of what those SS women were doing in the death camps.

For more results, Google = SS+Women, 10 pages.
Regards
Daniel

If you're going to do reenactment, i'd suggest linking up with the yahoo group :

3rd Reich Life (run by female reenactors, many from the UK)
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/3rdReichL ... =217279812

Wehrmacht-Auxillary
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Wehrmacht ... =217279812

both these groups have detailed threads on uniforms, vendors etc you might need.

The photo Moses shows is Norwegian Frontschwester nurse Elsa Stendal. I have a copy of the photo from Geir Brenden, and I used it in my Soldiers of the Waffen-SS book. Chances are that this version of the photo floating around the web was scanned out of my book. I guess that is understandable since the subject is rare and unusual.
